Longden Family History
Longden Name Meaning
English: habitational name perhaps from Longendale in Derbyshire. The placename must originally have been Old English lang ‘long’ + denu ‘valley’ to which Old English dæl ‘dale valley’ was tautologically added. The surname Longden would then represent either the original placename or a shortened form of the longer one.
